(WVUE) -

Although the crest had not yet reached Interstate 10 as of 4:45 p.m. Monday, Louisiana State Police said they did not think the flooding along the Pearl River would force the closure of Interstate-59 at the Louisiana line and I-10 in Hancock County.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation had advised that if these roads were closed, “congestion will be a major issue in the affected areas.”

MDOT advised commercial traffic and the traveling public to plan alternate routes just in case.
